There's a Suspect in the New England Patriots 'Deflategate' Scandal

There is reportedly a person of interest who could have been involved in the infamous “deflategate” scandal that took place in the 45-7 win from the Patriots vs. Colts AFC Championship game earlier this month.

The person in question is a New England Patriots locker-room attendant. The person took the balls from the official’s locker room into another room at the Stadium before bringing them back out to the field, which has prompted suspicion from a surveillance camera. The NFL is trying to determine if this person was involved, Fox Sports is reporting.

If you haven’t heard about the story, 11 of the 12 football game balls were found to be inflated significantly below the NFL’s requirements. Tom Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, gave a press conference where he adamantly denied that he cheated.

    And Tom Brady and the NE coaching staff told him to do it.

    Keep yappin. They didn’t need to do anything stupid like that to win. In fact the footballs were back to normal at halftime, and they kicked their butts in the second half.

    The only proper recourse here is a full disqualification from the superbowl. This was no doubt done in more than one game. They need to go back on ALL the games and check this guy out. Looking at the scores(i’m not usually into football) it seems they won the last game by a measly 4 points.

    They indeed won the game without the need to bend the rules… But they didn’t know that going into the game.
    It will be interesting to see who this person is and if he did it and why. If it is found that he did tamper, you can be sure that he’ll stay mum and will soon find himself with a nice fat “pension”

    Omg this is getting juicy. Crossing my fingers for Deflategate the Movie

    90 seconds to deflate 12 footballs by precisely 2psi? BS. The guy took a leak.

    I would expect nothing other than abject stupidity from someone of your avatar.

  • GregW

    In reality there’s still well-founded doubt that this was done in *any* games. Basic science doesn’t just provide a plausible explanation for the reported data; it essentially guarantees it. Looking for a nefarious intent highlights your own ignorance.
